Subject Fields: 
Art, Art History & Visual Studies

Join us on Thursday 4th November, for the first of two events in the second iteration of the Itinerant Imaginaries seminar series.

How can archival experimentation help us contend with, question and interrogate the narrative the nation tells about itself through the work of black artists and artists of colour in Britain?

These gatherings hosted by Creating Interference, aim to address the impasse we are currently facing by applying non-linear, collective and fragmentary methodologies to the work of black artists and artists of colour situated in Britain and the diaspora. They will address critical questions relating to intertwined histories of empire, memory, forgetting, radical collecting practices and the process of unsettling national archives.

Archival Disorientation
Thursday 4 November 2021, 18:00–20:00
Online Seminar | Convened by Barby Asante

We are excited to support this online seminar convened by artist Barby Asante, who will be joined by Nydia Swaby and other collaborators and friends to draw on the impasse facing archival studies. This conversation aims to explore a range of methodologies enacted to produce archival disorientation through experimentation, diasporic memory rituals and pleasure.

This event will take place on Zoom and will be live captioned. It will be recorded for later publication that will include BSL interpretation.

Limited spaces available, registration closes 1st November 12pm.

Book your free tickets via Eventbrite.
